God, it looks perfect, Ahiku <3~

Okay, gonna add the event tags then ^^ (About the text ... Some points that have to be included in it would be nice - makes it easier to come up with something ^^")

Thanks ^-^ @Lawl and Yuneyn

Tomorrow I'll do something for our "Bla of the month" stuff. I thought about a nice logo and a little NezuShi pic, namely Shion's coronation. Nezumi puts a crown on Shion's head. Something in that direction. (Or any better ideas? XD I don't wanna decide everything alone.)

And then something nice for our monthly No. 6 day. (But I don't have an idea what kind of motive we could use... o.o° Any ideas? Hmm...maybe drawing and writing NezuShi or something...)

@Lawl... mmmm, we should say what we intend to do... sourcing, trying to upload no. 6 fanarts with permission... monthly No. 6 day... No. 6 events... that we also have a forum and that other people should feel free to join and help us. That we invited them to join us... That it's just a No. 6 blog. For fans, with fans... something like that.

But not toooo long. XD

After that we'll also introduce our monthly stuff post, I think about just posting the banner, introducing the project and asking people to send their suggestions. (So we also need text for that thing.)  Then we can have our first recommendation post when November is going to end. And in the meantime we can reblog No. 6 fanarts (I think it would be nice to have as many No. 6 fanarts on our blog as possible, posted with artist name, so that it's easier to find things later), source, or try to repost something with permission.

We have also tracked tags in this blog... but I didn't use them yet. But if we want to organize stuff it might come in handy... for example a tagged site for events, a tagged site just for "of the month"...

God, I'm no good with ideas ... Coming up with something like a motive is really hard >.> Say, do you want to draw something for every category? Because I'd think that Nezumi would probably be best to present the "Best fanfiction of the month" ... Blog would probably be Shion ... and Art ... maybe Rikiga xD I don't know why I think of him though >.> (Or Art for Nezumi and Fanfictions for little Kalan and Riko ^^)

I'm horrible at introducing anything ... I know you write amazing texts for occasions like that though ^^"
Ah! I tried and it sounds horrible ... I'm sorry OTL Anyone able to write a decent text that includes those topics?

Ah, you want to add the artists names in the tags? Because Pixiv artists mostly have Japanese names, would you use Google Translator to use the latin alphabet?
Okay, about the text for the "Best of the Month":
"Hey guys! We decided to monthly present to you fanfictions, fanart and blogs that stood out in the fandom. Maybe you'd find someone new to follow or a new favorite artist? More good fanfiction to read which you haven't noticed yet? But to do this, we need your help. Please suggest to us your favorite artists, blogs and fanfictions. Or draw our attention to new people we didn't notice yet. We'll present the fruits of those suggestions to you at the end of the month - and save the other suggestions to work with them. So keep voting for your favorite!"
Man ... I tried so no one should criticize me xD I'm open for any changes. Wouldn't even mind if you'd find a better text, really ^^"

@Lawl: ;_; Maah... ok I'll try it later XD Or tomorrow.. just can't think right now. It's so cold in here. >,< Haha XD But your text isn't that bad. o.o I'll see if we can change it a little bit, later.

Ah, ok, I just thought I'd draw something in general... but it might be great to have little banner for everything like a headline and then we can post our links inbetween. I think that would look nice. I'll think about it tomorrow.

But for the first post when we introduce it, we just need one pic.

I like the text!! ^^

I can probably try to write something tomorrow, now it's dinner time and all. (Though I don't promise because apparently a friend of mine is visiting her family in Lux tomorrow but she's terrible at keeping me posted so it's possible that tomorrow morning she'll send me a message like "hey, let's do something") But if I'm home, I'll try!

What texts do we need?
- Event days (No.6 Day)
- Monthly Recs
- Blog announcement

Anything else?

I think that would be enough. Those are the most important ones. :3

@Ahiku: Ahaha, but I tried, really! I'm so sorry that you have to do it again u_u
Yeah, change it all you want, really. I'm no good with official texts ... Especially not in English.

I didn't plan to cause you more work ^^" It was just ... you asked for ideas xD So, I just thought I might as well mention this possibility for more than one uniform banner.



@Curiousscarletteyes, @Yuneyn: Thank you very much OTL I still find it horrible but maybe it's just because I wrote it? Who knows ...
That would be really great - the more the merrier.

@Lawl, oh no, I like that text. :3 Thank you for that. There are just some things I wouldn't write like that, like "stood out"... Because it's not really about that... I mean, we'll also share old stuff that comes out of the woods. XD And it's good when several people write something... we can use the best parts of each text then. ^^

Ah... here's my suggestion, feel free to change it. XD

In our rubric “fanworks of the month” we will present and recommend No. 6 fanfictions, fanarts and interesting blogs to you.  Maybe that’s your chance to find someone new to follow you haven’t noticed yet, more good fanfictions to read or an upcoming favorite artist! Who knows? ;D
But to do this, we need your help. So you guys are on the spot!
What’s your favorite No. 6 related blog? What’s your favorite fanart or fanfiction?
To participate you can submit (link to our submit page) your suggestions directly on our blog or you can visit our forum (link to our forum).
We’ll present the “fanworks of the month” at the end of each month and save the other suggestions for later use.
So keep voting for your favorite!

I've opened the submit page! Here: http://restructuralcommittee.tumblr.com/submit
So, please tell me... did you get the message on Tumblr, too? I dunno how it works when it's a shared blog... if everyone gets the message or just the admins or just the person who opened the blog.

I didn't know how to quite put it so people would understand ^^" So it's good you point that out xD Yeah, let's build ourselves an own little Frankenstein's Monster ;)

I would leave out the 'like that'. I feel like it somehow doesn't fit into the sentence ...

Other than that, your text is perfect like always. Maybe it's just experience from writing letters to customers? I'd buy anything from you, really xD

Okay ^^ I changed it.

Lol really? XD I normally just write declines... like: "We are sorry to inform you, but you won't get any money back. Have a nice day." X'D

Hmm, ah, Lawl... did you get a message on Tumblr that's directed to the rc blog? I dunno if I'm the only one who gets those (because I tested the submit thing, you can submit links... since you can't sent them via ask...for those who don't wanna come here.)

The text is great!!
And I received the blog suggestion^^

Ah just one thing, on the submit page, you wrote "suggenstions" instead of suggestion^^ Just a small typo ;)

Wow, this thread got super long! I really have nothing useful to add rather than WOW that banner looks absolutely gorgeous, Ahiku, you did an amazing job! And I love the name, great suggestion from Weisel~

Really excited about this, even if I don't have a lot of time to be online during the day. I've mostly been going through the tag and through DeviantART to reblog fanart by the original artists themselves, I'm not sure if that's helpful but. Well. If there's anything I can do to help? (Like said, I don't have a lot of time during the day for now (until December I guess), but I will do my best)

That was no typo, that was my spirit of mischief to check out if you guys are paying attention. XD No really, the n isn't even close to e and s... What the heck XD

@listenforthelove: Thank you *_*

Ah, rebloging is just fine. ^^ Maybe you can also reblog it directly on the rc blog when we start to use it. I'll send you an email invitation to join the shared blog. As long as we all do a little bit it's ok... or if you accidentally discover unsourced art you can source it. XD We have text sources so it shouldn't take too long.

When my vacation is over and I've to work again I also won't have that much time... (that's why I try to prepare as much as possible now... ^^)
